Nice restaurant serving classic South African cuisine, lots of grilled meats with some really tasty biltong. I also tried the ostrich with a crust, excellent. Good selection of wines and nice atmosphere, would recommend it.

A specialist restaurant. Steak and cheese. We managed to book the same day. But it was packed when we got there. There was a live band on when we ate, not intrusive to our meal. But a lovely backdrop. Would recommend.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some

foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
